Ndamukong Suh Gets Two-Game Suspension
After multiple fines and a meeting with the Commissioner during his bye week, Ndamukong Suh might finally start learning a lesson from his actions. Earlier today, the NFL suspended Suh for the next two games for his recent childish behavior.
In the third quarter of the Lions-Packers game on Thanksgiving Day, the All-Pro defensive lineman gave a blind stomp to the arm of Packers guard Evan Dietrich-Smith. Suh was ejected from the game for his actions, but insisted during his postgame interviews that he was simply trying to “separate himself” from Dietrich-Smith.
With this suspension, Suh will miss Detroit’s matchups this Sunday at New Orleans, followed by a December 11th home game against divisional rival Minnesota. The suspension will cost him a total of $164,000. Suh now has three days to appeal the suspension, and if he does, the NFL is already planning to expedite the hearing so a decision can be made before this Sunday’s game in New Orleans.
